I'm not sure if this is an installer, kudzu, or Xconfigurator bug... but
the cause looks to be the same.
Description of Problem:
The installer recognizes my Diamond Multimedia Systems FIRE GL 1000 PRO
card as a ELSA Gloria Synergy card (with only 512k of memory!).
After installation, /etc/sysconfig/hwconf contains (among other entries):
driver: Card:ELSA GLoria Synergy
desc: "Texas Instruments|TVP4020 [Permedia 2]"
However, lspci -v shows me (among other entries):
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Texas Instruments TVP4020 [Permedia 2]
(rev $ Subsystem: Diamond Multimedia Systems FIRE GL 1000 PRO
Flags: bus master, 66Mhz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 11
Memory at e6800000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128K]
Memory at e6000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8M]
Memory at e5800000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8M]
Expansion ROM at e77f0000 [disabled] [size=64K]
Capabilities:  AGP version 1.0
Running Xconfigurator with the --card "Diamond Fire GL 1000 PRO" option
works beautifully, and corrects the problem... but it would be nice to have
this card recognized automatically, even in the installer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
When in the installer, can you go to VC2 and run ddcprobe? It would be helpful
if you could attach the output of that.
Ok... ddcprobe provides:
VESA 2.0 detected.
OEM Name: PERMEDIA2.
Memory installed = 8 * 64k blocks = 512kb
Supported standard modes:
EDID read no supported by video card.
This problem still exists in RC2.
Bill -- the pcitable in kudzu is mapping to the non-generic card here
That's not a problem; it doesn't need to go to the specific entry.
Actually, Bill just made this change in kudzu
